 Session Abstract – PMWC 2022 Silicon Valley


Track Chair:
Swaroop Aradhya, Invitae

Genetic testing has evolved over time and various applications have successfully made it into the clinical setting. While oncology applications are dominating, we also see a rise in genetic/genomic applications for reproductive health, CVD diagnosis, or early life understanding. Technological advancements are required to scale genetic testing applications delivery including relay of genomic information to clinicians and patients. In parallel to technological challenges, hurdles are also observed when it comes to insight/knowledge extraction, reporting of clinical findings, and scaling of genetic counseling. This track will touch upon these various aspects including successful precision medicine models through biopharma ventures for rare disease understanding and direct to consumer genetic testing.
